Saturday Adventure: Hoffman Farms Winery
After spending some time in Milan, Michigan- attending the lavender festival at Lavender Lane & eating tacos at Peppers in downtown Milan - we decided to search for some wine 💙🍷 A quick Google search led us to Hoffman Farms wine tasting room & it was by far the coolest wine spot I’ve been yet!
The story on the bottle is “ Somewhere around 1830, a man named Elias Doty chose to farm a picturesque stretch of Michigan countryside that spanned 300 acres in both Highland and Rose Townships.
In 1964, Susan Briggs Fisher bought the property years after she had married into the legendary Fisher family. Her father, Walter O. Briggs was the largest automobile body manufacturer in the country. To Detroiters, he was even better known as the owner of the Tigers and Briggs stadium.
In 1993, the idyllic farm became my home. Today, Hoffman Farms continues to maintain the farming and stabling traditions of its predecessors.
I like to believe that my wine embodies the spirit that has made the farm such a joy to its inhabitants for more than 175 years. I hope you do, too.” - Robert Hoffman
So long story short 😜 - we drank a bottle of the Farmhouse Red & enjoyed a few glasses of yummy hard cider too! We sat outside for a little while taking in the scenery. We then moved inside to watch the horse lessons through the viewing window in the tasting room that was happening. 💙
They have tasting flights available, hard cider & of course many different kinds of bottles available to purchase. The prices by the glass & bottles were all very reasonable & there wasn’t anything I had that I didn’t like!
All & all it was the perfect afternoon spent & I will most certainly be back to this beautiful place! 💙🍷✨🐎 I hope you’ll give this spot a try too!!

*Be sure to check their hours & call a head to ensure they are open before heading that way! A local said she lived not too far & it wasn’t always open. Not sure when she tried to go, but better safe than sorry!
